our mission at the class deans office is to help you make the most of your time at smith. the class dean is responsible for your overall academic program. you are encouraged to see your dean privately throughout the year regarding any issue, whether academic or personal. your class dean is available to assist with course registration and procedures, academic options and general advice on such matters as study abroad, summer school and leaves of absence. we work closely with the registrar’s office to ensure that you are meeting your degree requirements.


the class deans office will be closed for the thanksgiving break from noon on wednesday, november 25th through sunday, november 29th.  we will be back in the office on monday, november 30th at 8:30am.
